LINCOLN, Neb. - Ameer Abdullah ran for 101 yards and a touchdown and Nebraska took control of the Big Ten Legends Division with a 23-9 victory over No. 20 Michigan on Saturday night. Wolverines quarterback Denard Robinson left the game late in the first half with a right elbow injury. Robinson, who spent the second half on the sideline in an overcoat, watched as freshman backup Russell Bellomy threw three interceptions.

The Huskers (6-2, 3-1) moved into a first-place tie with Michigan in the Legends but own the tiebreaker.

Michigan (5-3, 3-1) generated a season-low 188 yards during its first visit to Memorial Stadium since 1911. The Wolverines had 52 in the second half.

It was the second straight game Michigan failed to score a touchdown.

Taylor Martinez was 14 of 24 for 166 yards, with an interception. Bellomy was 3 of 16 for 38 yards.
